My wife and I travel frequently, and have taken many excursions. When we decided to go to Dubrovnik, we emailed Denis for an island-hopping tour. He quickly responded (his accessibility was amazing, and he answered numerous questions from me). He met us at the dock by our hotel exactly on time, and off we went. We started with a tour around Dubrovnik, and along the outer wall of the Old City. Following that we went to Kolocep. Denis docked the boat and said: "take a walk...take as long as you want, and I'll be here when you get back." Note: you might want to ask him how big the island is before you take off walking--we got lost and practically walked around the entire island! The views though, were SPECTACULAR! We then went to the island of Saipan--a little underwhelming, but charming fishing villiage. Denis saved the best for last, the island of Lopud. He encouraged us to go to the beach and also grab lunch. When we asked him when to be back, he said: "an hour or 9pm tonight, whenever you're done." We had an amazing time; the beach and the restaurant on the beach were great. *If you're offered a $4 kuna golf cart ride to the beach, take it--the walk is over a mile. BOTTOM LINE: Like everyone else reviewing Dubrovnik Boat Rentals, we HIGHLY recommend it!

We are just back from a delightful half day tour and would definitely recommend Dubrovnik Boat Tours.

Denis was very fast responding to my email enquiry and was able to book us in for a tour the next day.

Srdjen (sp?) our skipper collected us at our hotel's harbour right on time and off we went. The day was ours to go where we wanted. We weren't sure where to go so we just went exploring around all the stuff you should try to see while here. We went down around the old town - a really fascinating thing to see from the water- very different from when you're in it. Then we went island hopping.

The highlight was our lunch on Lopud where our skipper recommended Obala. I will have to do a separate review for the restaurant, but it was fantastic.

We also stopped at a cave you can swim in and a lovely fishing village and another island we could walk around on and see some great views.

They provided drinks (beer, water, wine, whatever you need) and towels and a snorkel for swimming so you really just need to show up and enjoy.

All in all, a great day and I thought the value was very good. I wouldn't hesitate to book a trip with this team.

Denis was very quick to respond to my email inquiries and called once we arrived in Dubrovnik. Srdjen was a great captain/tour guide. We loved having a private tour vs one of the many boats around Dubrovnik that take a lot of people. Srdjen showed us many beautiful areas, gave us time to explore each island and recommended a very good lunch spot. It was sunny and warm, perfect for being out on the water. I highly recommend Denis and Srdjen from DubrovnikBoatRentals.com.

We absolutely adored our trip with Denis. The weather started off less than perfect, with cloudy skies and light rain. Denis managed to mitigate the effect of this by putting up a sun roof to shield us from the rain, providing us with blankets and telling us about different walking routes we could take on different islands. He recommended a truly excellent restaurant for lunch which was probably the highlight of our trip (food-wise) and to our delight and disbelief the sun came out during the lunch and remained in the sky for the rest of the day. He even took us to an area where we could observe dolphins. Finally, he took us to the beautiful island of Lokrum which cemented the tour as one that I cannot recommend highly enough. Bear in mind while reading this review that we are students from the UK and therefore were on budget; the price of the tour was a little high for us (though presumably acceptable for other groups of travelers) but was more than worth it. Denis was the most generous, knowledgeable, polite and intuitive host we could have asked for. A must-do.

Highly recommend, very accommodating (brought along champagne and strawberries, blankets etc on request). Lovely afternoon cursing around the small islands, some good local info and he was excellent in the slightly choppy waters. Something different and gives you a unique experience, romantic and fun.
